Andrea Mitchell Not Cool With Being in an Obama Ad

MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell dedicated a few moments of “Andrea Mitchell Reports” to address the new campaign ad from the Obama campaign, an ad that features her “fact checking” Mitt Romney. As we noted earlier NBC sent a letter to the Obama campaign, and now Mitchell herself wanted to clear the air on her daily program:

“Some viewers might be understandably confused by the fact that the Obama campaign is airing a commercial right now including a video clip of me fact-checking Gov. Romney after last week’s debate. You should know that NBC News has not granted either campaign permission to use our news material, and immediately requested that the campaign refrain from using NBC News material in this and future advertisements. In this case the Obama commercial uses only a short clip from a Truth Squad report that in fact pointed out exaggerations and/or misstatements that both candidates had made during the debate. Just wanted to make that clear.”
